Babe of the Abyss

Babe of the Abyss, in the grade system of A∴A∴, is “the link” in The Order of the R.C. between Adeptus Exemptus 7 = 4 and Magister Templi 7 = 4 (in The Order of the S. S.)

“Magister Templi …………. 7 = 4
The Order of the R. C.
(Babe of the Abyss — the link)
Adeptus Exemptus ………… 7 = 4“—One Star in Sight sub figurâ CDLXXXIX

“The Grade of the Babe of the Abyss is not a Grade in the proper sense, being rather a passage between the two Orders. Its characteristics are wholly negative, as it is attained by the resolve of the Adeptus Exemptus to surrender all that he has and is for ever. It is an annihilation of all the bonds that compose the self or constitute the Cosmos, a resolution of all complexities into their elements, and these thereby cease to manifest, since things are only knowable in respect of their relation to, and reaction on, other things.”—One Star in Sight sub figurâ CDLXXXIX
